    Bon Jovi were among the better hair bands of the 80s. That's not saying much, but the only way your statement is true is if Dokken, Winger, Poison, Night Ranger, Cinderella, etc. were founded by aliens.

    I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride, and I'm wanted dead or alive. When you're talking 80s hair metal that's pretty much the pinnacle.

    I'll be there for you
    These five words I swear to you
    When you breathe, I wanna be the air for you
    I'll be there for you
    I'd live and I'd die for you
    I'll steal the sun from the sky for you
    What words can't say, love can do
    I'll be there for you


    If that song doesn't have you holding up a lighter, then you have either no soul, or no lighter.

    "Oh, yessss, Jon Bon Jovi, you are an actor now, yesss, yesss.

    I hear you're going to be in a vampire movie.....
    It's nice to see you got a role that actually requires you to suck."

    If you said this in any working-class area of New Jersey, you'd be eaten alive.

    Or in India. He's just getting big over there. Last time my wife was in Bangalore, all of her cousins kept asking her, "Do you like Jon Bon Jovi? We love him." She said they had posters of him in their rooms. My wife told them they might want to keep that to themselves if they ever move to the US :D

    Is it just me or does "It's My Life" segue seemlessly into "Summer of '69"?

    Listening to KEXP is a bad idea when you are broke and can't afford new music.

    James Iha would've had a brilliant solo career if only he had called himself "That Asian Guy From Smashing Pumpkins."

    Yes. I'd give it a thumbs up. They don't set the world on fire, but I'd say three quarters of the tracks on the album are keepers. The first five tracks are outstanding, esp. "Somebody Told Me" (single of the year right now, IMHO), and "Smile Like You Mean It."

    hang, when I get back from Seattle, I can loan you the CD when we meet up for a beer.

    Since I'm in Seattle this week, it's even better that I don't have to log on to the net to listen.

    What the hell was Tom Petty thinking when he decided to sing "Breakdown" with that "accent"?

    there are a few good songs but after hearing the rest of Radiohead's catalog Pablo Honey pales in comparison.

    i can't take them in large doses, but a good sugarcubes tune once every month or so can lift the spirits.

    I always thought the Sugarcubes would have been a great band if they just dumped that jabbering Fred Schneider wannabe.

    Where's the video of him doing Valerie Bertinelli?

    ...and Paris Hilton.










    ... and David Lee Roth.



    I'm a bad person.

    Ain't it the truth. It was like he was there to deliberately sabatage their success.
